It's not an uncommon plant here in my area of Maine and I've seen many over the past few years. Despite their familiarity I've always admired a pretty Hydrangea and finally decided to get one for myself. I was hoping to find a blue one but then I found out that the color really depends on your soil.
(Another thing I find fascinating about the Hydrangea - the fact that it can change color over time and that you can influence its color by providing the correct nutrients. That's just nifty beans.)
So, I found one at the local Big Box and it was even on sale because of a little frost damage. It wasn't too bad so I brought it home and planted it right in front.
